Clearly some great insight based on 'real world' experience.

Even while going deep into the capabilities of SharePoint, the book and recommendations are very readable and easy to follow.

This book is everything that I hoped SharePoint for Project Management: How to Create a Project Management Information System (PMIS) with SharePoint would be. While "SharePoint for Project Management" is rather simplistic and aimed at someone who has never used SharePoint before, Seamless Teamwork really has some great ideas on how to use SharePoint to collaborate on projects. Even while going deep into the capabilities of SharePoint, the book and recommendations are very readable and easy to follow. Beyond even the amazing capabilities of SharePoint, the author discusses considerations for virtual teams, working offline, and how to convince teams to work on SharePoint instead of falling back on e-mail. I have been using SharePoint heavily for the last year and still got some great ideas on ways I could use SharePoint to better manage ongoing projects. This book is HIGHLY recommended for anyone that uses SharePoint to collaborate on projects.

It was interesting how this book has shifted on my radar... Seamless Teamwork: Using Microsoft SharePoint Technologies to Collaborate, Innovate, and Drive Business in New Ways by Michael Sampson. Michael is a virtual colleague of mine in the collaboration space, and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing his book on SharePoint. I told him yes, although at the time I was not doing much of anything with Microsoft's collaboration offering. But by the time the book was published, my technical world had shifted towards a heavy emphasis on SharePoint. Therefore, the "courtesy review" became a "necessary read." And in terms of framing the use of a software package within the context of a real world scenario, few have done it this well.

Contents:
The New Project; Managing the Project and Finding a Team; Setting Up SharePoint; Team, Meet SharePoint; Creating a Shared Vision; Understanding the Options; Analyzing the Options; Making a Decision; Concluding the Project; Winning in the Market; Index

Rather than write the normal "here's feature x, and here's how you use it" book, Michael presents the material within the context of a story about a project. Roger Lengel has been asked to take on "Project Delta" for the Fourth Coffee company. It's a project to expand the business internationally, and Roger will have a team of geographically dispersed individuals. Furthermore, he's been asked to use SharePoint to manage the project, a software package he's not familiar with. He knows this project is important and will have an impact on his future with the company, so he needs to take advantage of all the tools at his disposal to make the project a success. As he sets up each part of the team, he learns about a new feature of SharePoint that can help him manage the work.

I find "Seamless Teamwork" to be very well written, easy to follow and overall a very usable introduction to anyone who is using SharePoint out of the box and wants to set up SharePoint sites for projects, team collaboration and meetings. It helps you navigate the complex environment of SharePoint, to find the essential features and how to set up SharePoint sites for team collaboration.

In fact, the book would have been very helpful for me when I first started using SharePoint for the purpose of team collaboration. Now I can simply recommend colleagues and others who seek my help for setting up SharePoint for project and team collaboration to buy and read "Seamless Teamwork" instead of consulting me. ;-)

The book also does a good job at explaining how to use new tools and technologies such as wikis, blogs and RSS. In this way, it also serves as a good introduction to these tools and technologies for those who are not familiar with them or don't yet understand the business value of a technology such as RSS.

Furthermore, the book touches on some of the things that are really essential for making collaboration work, such as creating a shared vision. These kind of "collaboration essentials" are well integrated with the more practical hands-on instructions throughout the book.

From a personal point of view, it would have been great if the book also had touched upon situations where team members might not be using computers with Office 2007 installed, when accessing SharePoint from outside the corporate firewalls or when you need to collaborate with partners and customers.

To sum up - I find "Seamless Teamwork" to be a very valuable resource that I would (and do) recommend to anyone who is interested in how SharePoint can be used for team collaboration.

I was quite disappointed with this book. Although the writing style was good, the technical level was clearly written for an absolute beginner. There was no customization other than browser-based out-of-the-box configuration, and most of those were contrived. Although the scenarios used were tied to project management, no formal project management methods were used or discussed. I can't imagine that this would be useful to anyone working in a corporate environment.

"Seamless Teamwork" is a timely and useful resource for information workers who want to understand how to use Microsoft SharePoint in order to foster effective collaboration. The book explains key SharePoint concepts and tools, along with complementary offerings from Microsoft (e.g., Outlook, OneNote, and Groove) and other software vendors (e.g., Colligo).

Michael Sampson has written an engaging narrative, structured around real-world collaboration needs and solutions; he explains not just what SharePoint does, but also the business context and policies required to successfully deploy and use it as a collaboration platform.
